Description of key information

Biodegradation: Raedily biodegradable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Ready biodegradability has been investigated in a modified Sturm test conducted according to OECD Test Guideline No. 301 B. 10% degradation (beginning of biodegradation) occurred after 9 -10 days and the 60% pass level was achieved within the 10 -day-window. The substance is therefore regarded as readily biodegradable.

A second test, conducted as a modified MITI Test reported in the literature describes the substance as being only inherently biodegradable.
